bring in matthew's wife and steve raglan is his attorney. thank you for joining us, we really appreciate it. >> thank you. >> first of all molly how did this idea for the business start and when you guys started it or matthew started it, did you guys have any sense of the danger involved that the federal government would be this unreasonable when it came to state's rights? >> well, initially, we had some concerns. because we had concerns, we went to different attorneys we went to people we thought were the foremost experts on the cubject in california, and after meeting with them, we felt so secure. we felt that it was legal in california, we were going to stay within the state guidelines, follow all the laws, and these attorneys advised us that as long as we did that, we would be safe, and of course, because of what the obama administration said, there would be no problem so in the end my husband went forward because we felt so secure in the fact that this was a legal business and a business of helping people. >> steve did they offer a plea here? >> well, what they've told matt right no

. the full crazy came from texas congressman steve stockman who said he will try to defund the white house or file articles of impeachment if that's what it takes to stop the president from passing laws designed only to save american lives. which is not to say that congressman stockman doesn't have supporters. no former reagan attorney ed meese said stockman would have a good case for impeachment of high crimes and misteds against this president. we're only telling you what ed meese thinks about this because smirnoff and irrelevant '80s figures weren't available for comment. what would the president like congress to pass? jay carney was a lot more clear on that. >> there are specific legislative actions that he will continue to call on congress to take including the assault weapons ban including a measure to ban high-capacity magazine clips including an effort to close the very big loopholes in the background check system in our country. >> john: an assault weapons ban that senate majority leader harry reid said likely wouldn't pass the house. you see the president wants you to keep trying

gridlock steve cohen of memphis introduced a bill this week which would require states to use independent redistricting commissions in drawing those maps. here we in to talk about his bill and what he expects during president obama's second term, is congressman steve cohen. welcome to "the war room"." >> thank you good to be with you. >> michael: do you think they would or could pass this bill. >> whether they would is doubtful but it's an important bill because we have gridlock and the reason for that is too many districts are concerned about the primary and the far right and far left and they don't have to work with the whole community or the center, because of the partisan redistricting which we have in most states are drawn up just to suit their people or make them overwhelmingly ohio. ohio went for the president. ohio went to sherrod brown but yet 12 of the 16 districts drawn up by the ohio legislature were republican. that's not right. it does not reflect the will of the people. it reflects the lines they've drawn. it makes it that those the republicans don't have to work with the c

. . . well president obama. texas congressman steve stockman started team gop's call for imteachment and florida freshman trey radel signed on. >> like you mention he's putting out all of these executive orders and is overstepping his bounds. if that continues could that build up to make a case for impeachment. >> all options should be on the table. ask yourself what are you going to do when a republican gets in that you may not agree and like very much, and he is doing the same thing? >> jennifer: if the president's pursuit of an issue like gun safety that the vast majority of americans support is grounds for impeachment, imagine what kind of trouble he would get in if he actually fixed the economy or brought about world peace. alan grayson is here, and welcome back inside "the war room" and welcome back to congress. i know i'm a little late saying it, but welcome back. >> thanks i gave a speech about that scenario if the participate brought about world peace, and i said the republicans would accuse him of ruining the military. >> jennifer: do you agree that th

't these common sense initiatives working? i bring you to texas and state representative steve toth. >> we insure that as texas we follow the united states constitution. if this government in tricks on our second amendment right giving us the right not only to bear articles but tells the federal government not to create any laws that infringes on those rights, we will do everything we can to push back against that. >> cenk: this is one of three lunatics across the country saying that we are not going to listen to federal law. so you've got representative joe carr in tennessee and wyoming state represent kendall kreker saying we are not going to listen to the federal laws, we're not going to listen to that. we are going to do whatever we want. >> that's one of the best accents i've ever heard. >> cenk: i remember that going down a couple of decades ago. how did that turn out for the south, tennessee and texas? >> it didn't work the way they thought. and again who is against background checks? who in america could be against background checks. >> is he actually against closing the gun show loophole

representative steve stockman, responding to the president's press conference. >> if he thinks these bills are good, his law is good, he should go through congress. he's not a king. reminds me of saddam hussein when he used kids. >> jennifer: the question, which is coming out of all of this is whether the president should fight for rational policy that he knows will not pass an irrational house of representatives. and the answer to that question is really in a painting by grace mcdonnell, a 6-year-old sandy hook victim whose dad gave the president a piece of her artwork >> obama: i think about grace. i think about the life that she lived. and the life that lay ahead of her. and most of all, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. >> jennifer: for grace, this fight is worth waging. and for her this fight may even be worth losing in the short term anyway. because while the president might be able to squeak out an unsatisfying victory a small and ugly bill riddled with loopholes and signifying nothing, perhaps in this instance, the better c

if you know the answer to this, by if you're a hostage in this situation, steve made it out. his wife is on tape. let me show that you first and then we'll talk about it. >> he was there in hiding for about two and a half days, was within two or three feet of some of the terrorists at times some of his friends didn't make it. there were a couple of times when he said he truly did think he was going to die. >> cenk: thank god he didn't. so is there any tips for anybody who finds themselves in a situation like this? >> well, i mean, it sounds like he, you know did the right thing, and trusted his gut instincts in staying in hiding. i mean, obviously, we can see you don't want to wait for the algerians to save you. interestingly, when i was going through c.i.a. training and we did have some training if we were taken hostage or interrogated and what really surprised me, i had always thought that, you know, they would train us to be as stoic as possible. in fact, they kind of encouraged us to wine and be as problematic as possible to your hostage takers to show that you are the kind of per

his gun safety measures. texas rep steve stockman issued the warning yesterday saying he will introduce articles of impeachment if obama uses executive order to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. stockman claims a use of that power by the president would be unconstitutional and an existential threat to the nation. this is not the first time he's taken a controversial stance on guns. during his first term in the house, his office was slow to turn over a letter to the fbi that appeared to contain evidence about the oklahoma city bombings. last week, he proposed a repeal of all gun-free zones in schools. it looks like president obama might have to issue executive order if he wants anything done on gun control. joe biden's task force will likely propose a ban on high-capacity clips and on assault weapons but majority leader harry reid says something like that might pass the senate but he doubts it has any chance of passing the house. state governors though are making some progress on new gun laws. new york's andrew cuomo and other lawmakers from the state reached a deal

was like an aide to bob dole. steve stockman who got the extra dose of crazy as a member congress, he will introduce an impeachment resolution. and the nra will fund raise off of that. this is the thing. there has been a been a good amount of writing by david fromme about the right-wing as a racket, as an operation they don't care whether they win or lose. they like to take on crazy issues that can get 10, 15% of the people to give them money whether the nra continue to choose to be a racket, go for the money or choose to try to remain age organization of gun owners. if they don't, i think they will get beat again and again and again, state after state because they are so far from the mainstream. >> talking down their own site. that was the great joy of this past election day was the morning after the democrats swept most of the the races in country, you know the cokekoch brothers and sheldon adelson that karl rove and the rnc had redistributed their wealth. >> that's what they do jon fugelsang with stephanie miller's sexy liberal comedy tour. good l
